I am using Illustrator 2018 on Windows.
I am working with a series of Photoshop work paths (exported from Photoshop 2018) which are all made using a 300 dpi bmp.
Until recently when I opened a work path file in Illustrator it placed the imported paths on a square artboard which was always the same size each time I opened a path.
I do not know what or how but something has changed and each path is now placed on a thin rectangle shaped artboard. This is annoying as I now have to manually resize each artboard.
Is there a way to set the default artboard so that each time an image or path is opened or imported the artboard is the same size?
